Chocolate Raspberry Role Cake

It’s Holly’s birthday!


Holly is my big sister by 13 years. I was about 5 years old when she went off to college. As a little 5 year old, I loved sitting in her room talking to her as she got ready to leave for school or work. Sometimes, I would simultaneously jump up and down on her bed and sing to N*sync while eating insatiable amounts of jelly beans from her candy machine (days before sweet and natural went together in our vocabulary).

Holly is a great older sister. She’s hilarious and honestly makes me bust a lung laughing every time we’re together. Just one of those sister things. We always have so much fun together.


For Holly’s birthday every year,  our mom would always make this chocolate raspberry cake. It’s one of Holly’s favorites. Chocolate, whipped cream and raspberries are sure to make it yours too!

And this cake is wonderful for all kinds of celebrating!  The sweet raspberry and cream filling makes this a festive dessert all during the holiday season!
